Andrew J. Lee - McDermott Will & Emery


Andrew Lee is a recognized leader in the international antitrust sphere who focuses his practice primarily on cross-border antitrust and competition matters. Over the past 15 years, he has counseled numerous leading international corporations from Asia that have faced high-risk antitrust investigations and litigation–spanning from dynamic random-access memory (DRAM), cathode ray tube (CRT) panels, liquid crystal display (LCD) panels, auto parts, canned tuna, lithium-ion batteries, refined petroleum products and technology platform companies. Andrew has also served as co-lead counsel on several multidistrict litigation cases stemming directly from those investigations. In addition, he actively advises his international clients on merger control matters–including Hart-Scott-Rodino notifications, comprehensive global premerger risk evaluations, as well as representing his clients before the US antitrust agencies.
